Abstract

This essay examines the effects of a "we can't" theatre culture as experienced by the author. I detail my experiments in discerning and enacting a we can way of doing theatre amidst a creative environment punctuated by unkept promises. My account examines two main unkept promises or we can moments: we can write didactic drama and we can produce your play that way.
